How to make outdoor chair cushion covers,outside storage bench plans,closet gun rack ideas - For Outdoors
I’m going to show you step-by-step how easy it is to make new covers for those faded, time-worn, covered in bird poop and who knows what else, outdoor cushions! Next you’ll want to lay out your cushion so that folded over, the fabric covers the cushion from top to bottom. Next you’ll need to put your cover back on the cushion (still inside out) and pin your two corner seams. With my fabric flat (two pieces together: one for the top and one for the bottom), I laid my cushion on top. I’ve been sitting on enough fabric to cover my 4-chair patio set and it turns out that the fabric is the same fabric that you used.
There are so many choices when you are choosing fabric to make your own…a blessing and a curse! I just finished my patio cushions and they look great I ended up doing the lumbar cushions instead of the big seat cushions since it saved a little money and I don’t mind the big cushions too much. I have been sitting here and got half way on my own thinking through this process and just couldn’t bring together how to attach to back and what to do with the excess in the corners to get it to wrap over.
Now that winter is fast approaching, I’ll be checking out the fabric stores for my new patio cushions for next summer! This is a great way to save the cushions you already have and for so much less than purchasing new ones!
I have new cushions now (because I afraid to make them), but next time I need (or want a new look) I have super directions that look easy enough for me to tackle!
